Preventing Campus Bicycle Thefts

Since September 23, San Jose City College has had at least 5 bike thefts. The campus police department suspects the culprit or culprits are non-students coming on to campus.

To help ensure that your bike stays where it belongs, here are some anti-theft tips from campus police; 

  • Use the appropriate type of lock that can’t easily be broken into or destroyed
  • Lock your bike to a proper bike rack and secure it in the best way possible
  • Do not leave your bike on campus for an extended period of time
  • Make sure you have a photo of, and the serial number of your bike, in case it does get stolen

Thankfully, if you are in need of a more sophisticated bike lock, Bicycle Express (located in Downtown SJ) is offering a 20% off discount on bike locks solely for San Jose City College students. Show your student ID if you decide to make a purchase.
